So this week’s theme is “Everyday life” and what a perfect theme for the week because today in the mail I received my new shaving gear from Dollarshaveclub.com. The company has an awesome idea, I pay them money, they send me new razors in the mail monthly, or every second month depending on how much I need to shave, which in my case isn’t very much. The theme is pretty vague this week so I guess we can spin pretty much anything to fit the category. Should be interesting!
Here I amFixing up some ‘za. Melissa took this pic again today! I set her up and she knocked it out. I was just sprinkling some cheese on the pie, covering up the bacon and pineapple. I think I was singing, “when the moon hits your eye like a square pizza pie.” The theme of this week is ‘everyday life’.
Also, this is my new favourite shirt.
After Movember was done I decided to keep the ‘stache to give it another month to see what I could grow (after one month it was pretty pitiful, actually it still is, haha). But I think it’s time has passed, Nan called it a misplaced eyebrow Friday night and told me to get rid of it, haha. Who am I to argue with the matriarch? I’m going to shave it off in the morning and thought I should pay it homage with a blog post tonight.
Melissa took this photo, thanks Love!
One of my favourite local artists is a dandy fellow called Graham Blair. He specializes in woodcut prints, which are incredible. We have 4 of his pieces hanging proudly in our home, and I am sure we will get more in the years to come. The focus of this picture was on his biggest artwork, which took him over 90 hours to carve out. Each season of the year is depicted on a suit of cards, and fittingly the winter season is clubs, and one of the focuses of that season is the seal hunt. Great stuff!
Some weeks I hate the theme, but the theme really does let you play around with the photo editing software and try to come up with something great. I went to Rocket Bakery today for breakfast, and snapped a couple shots while inside. I did a lot of post processing with this, but I really liked how it turned out. I guess one point of the blog is to step outside our comfort zone, and try to capture some truly unique.
So I broke the theme, but I wanted to show the colour of the game and it didn’t work in B&W. Risk Legacy is a wicked Risk variant we’ve been playing for a while. 5 of us have played 14 games since May. There’s a 4 way tie with 3 wins, and I’m bringing up the rear with a meager 2.
I’ve been shooting timelapse vids of these games. Munky jumped in the frame here and Jeff landed his (SPOILER ALERT) UFO on his head.
Thanks for that pic of me, Matt. Har.
So I know this is a boardgame, but this picture is taken in black and white so it counts towards the theme! A lot of great pictures taken tonight, so it was hard to choose which one to use. I felt this one looked best in black and white. It is a picture of Dan rolling die in one of our favourite games “Risk: Legacy”. I liked the contrast between his shirt, the dice, and the pictures in the background. I’m sure boardgame pictures will sneak in for other themes throughout the year. Until tomorrow!
